Community Talk: 27 October 2021 at 11 am (CET)

Livestock production in the greater Horn of Africa contributes to a considerable percentage of the National GDPs. However, livestock production in this region faces a great number of challenges during production, key amongst which is the occurrence of viral livestock disease, with Foot-and-Mouth disease (FMD) topping this list. According to FAO, FMD is one of the most important livestock diseases posing a great economic threat as a result of direct and indirect economic losses. The KEET-FMD project aims at:

  1. Improving insight into regional FMD viral epidemiology
  2. Understanding further the mismatch between the vaccine and field strains within this region
  3. Improve on constraints in reagent supply by ensuring self-sufficiency
  4. Training and education of stakeholders for the consolidated efforts in tackling FMD
